In the depths of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt promised the American people a “New Deal.” Over the decade 1933-43, a constellation of federally sponsored programs put millions of jobless Americans back to work and helped to revive a moribund economy.

Hundreds of thousands of roads,...

The fake book is a central part of the culture of playing music in public, particularly in jazz, where improvisation is particularly valued. Fake books are not intended for novices: the reader must...

Much of this material defies category, and has therefore not been given one. The bulk of the tapes in this library were donated to the...
